How to search the minimum and the maximum element in an array ?


This example shows how to search the minimum and maximum element in an array by using Collection.max() and Collection.min() methods of Collection class .

import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.Collections;

public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Integer[] numbers = { 8, 2, 7, 1, 4, 9, 5};
      int min = (int) Collections.min(Arrays.asList(numbers));
      int max = (int) Collections.max(Arrays.asList(numbers));
      System.out.println("Min number: " + min);
      System.out.println("Max number: " + max);
